Modern Family’s Emmy-nominated re-recording mixers - postPerspective

With the 72nd Emmys / Television Academy's Awards coming up, we'd like to congratulate the sound team of Dean Okrand, Brian Harman, Peter Bawiec, Stephen Tibbo, and Srujan Popovic on their nomination for the final season of Modern Family - Finale part 1.

After 11 seasons, the ABC comedy Modern Family has come to an end. Over the years, we’ve watched as the Dunphy/Pritchett family changed, expanded and grew up, all the while making us laugh.The show’s beauty was in its relatability. Phil and Claire Dunphy and their kids seemed real, or at least r...

WATCH: Limited Series Trailer | Barkskins

National Geographic has just announced they will be advancing the release date of their period drama #Barkskins to Memorial Day, May 25, with a following day release on Hulu.

Barkskins premiers globally in 172 countries and 43 languages. This eight-episode historical fiction series, created by Elwood Reid, hails from FOX Television Studios and Scott Rudin Productions, and is based on the bestselling novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Proulx.

We're thrilled to have provided the sound on this phenomenal series. With Supervising Sound Editor Daniel Pagan and re-recording mixers Mark Hensley, Bob Bronow, and John Morse-Pollack Chalfant, this series was not an easy feat. Not only were they faced with the fact this was a "period" driven piece, but they also had to support the amazingly intense story with a killer soundtrack (pun intended ;)

This series CANNOT be missed so make sure to mark your calendars for May 25th.

Dear Friends:


As Emmy Night approaches, I want to reach out and congratulate Dean Okrand and Brian Harman for their tenth Emmy nomination for MODERN FAMILY. For those who don’t keep track of such things, that’s a nomination for every single season this amazing show has been on the air, and six of those nominations resulted in a trophy. Many thanks to Jeff Morton, Mariel Paniagua, and the entire MODERN FAMILY creative team. You include SPS as your sound company, tell us what needs to be louder and what needs to be softer, and we win Emmy’s year after year. Is this a great business or what?

Starting with RAID ON ENTEBBE in 1979, the creative teams at Smart Post Sound have earned 11 Emmy's for sound design, 9 Emmy's for mixing, 5 CAS trophies, and 33 Golden Reels…that’s more recognition for quality than any other sound company. Furthermore, most of our awards recognized excellence on projects that were completely different from one another. With the current obsession around series television, that has changed (I did, however, feel that the sword fights in season four of GOT were a teensy bit better than the last season).

Unfortunately, not every inspired soundtrack can elbow its way into award consideration these days, and we did eighty titles last season that are the proof, including NCIS, NOLA, SUPERGIRL, MAYANS, BLACK LIGHTENING, THE PASSAGE, QUEEN OF THE SOUTH, THE CHI, DEAD TO ME, AMERICAN SOUL, THIS IS US, STEP UP, ONE DAY AT A TIME, and GENIUS: PICASSO.

We’re also excited about the work we’ve been doing at SMART POST SOUND CANADA in Vancouver and Toronto. Last season we completed SIRENS, LIFESIZE, NO SLEEP ‘TILL CHRISTMAS, and one of the biggest Disney Channel films in recent memory, DESCENDENTS 3. We’ve just started in Toronto with the Lifetime film, SAVING ALEX which was edited in Toronto and mixed right here in Burbank where the mixers never lose feeling in their fingers due to frostbite.

Little more than a decade ago Smart Post Sound was founded to be the company where our thinking caps are always on our heads, never on the hook behind the door of some fancy office. You’ve shown us over and over through your loyal support that you want smart solutions to your post problems.

As we all navigate the new wild west of post-production together, SPS will continue to work as your partner to achieve exciting creative outcomes that thrill those of us working in the trenches and audiences throughout the world.


Sincerely,

Joe Melody, President
